That isn't the California I remember (left in 1974) and I won't be heading back. Was a Boy Scout there, too.

Major victory for Scouting to not have the socialist gay loving godless thugwimp show up - he was too busy yucking with the girlies in View and subverting American Freedoms.

LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, AND TRANSGENDER PRIDE MONTH, 2009 [PROCLAMATION]
WHITEHOUSE.GOV - “BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA A PROCLAMATION” ^ | June 1, 2009 | n/a

Note: The following text is a quote:

THE BRIEFING ROOM

THE WHITE HOUSE Office of the Press Secretary

___________________________________________________________ For Immediate Release June 1, 2009

LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, AND TRANSGENDER PRIDE MONTH, 2009 - - - - - - - BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA A PROCLAMATION

Forty years ago, patrons and supporters of the Stonewall Inn in New York City resisted police harassment that had become all too common for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. Out of this resistance, the LGBT rights movement in America was born. During LGBT Pride Month, we commemorate the events of June 1969 and commit to achieving equal justice under law for LGBT Americans.

LGBT Americans have made, and continue to make, great and lasting contributions that continue to strengthen the fabric of American society. There are many well-respected LGBT leaders in all professional fields, including the arts and business communities. LGBT Americans also mobilized the Nation to respond to the domestic HIV/AIDS epidemic and have played a vital role in broadening this country’s response to the HIV pandemic.

Due in no small part to the determination and dedication of the LGBT rights movement, more LGBT Americans are living their lives openly today than ever before. I am proud to be the first President to appoint openly LGBT candidates to Senate-confirmed positions in the first 100 days of an Administration. These individuals embody the best qualities we seek in public servants, and across my Administration — in both the White House and the Federal agencies — openly LGBT employees are doing their jobs with distinction and professionalism.

The LGBT rights movement has achieved great progress, but there is more work to be done. LGBT youth should feel safe to learn without the fear of harassment, and LGBT families and seniors should be allowed to live their lives with dignity and respect.

My Administration has partnered with the LGBT community to advance a wide range of initiatives. At the international level, I have joined efforts at the United Nations to decriminalize homosexuality around the world. Here at home, I continue to support measures to bring the full spectrum of equal rights to LGBT Americans. These measures include enhancing hate crimes laws, supporting civil unions and Federal rights for LGBT couples, outlawing discrimination in the workplace, ensuring adoption rights, and ending the existing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in a way that strengthens our Armed Forces and our national security. We must also commit ourselves to fighting the HIV/AIDS epidemic by both reducing the number of HIV infections and providing care and support services to people living with HIV/AIDS across the United States.

These issues affect not only the LGBT community, but also our entire Nation. As long as the promise of equality for all remains unfulfilled, all Americans are affected. If we can work together to advance the principles upon which our Nation was founded, every American will benefit. During LGBT Pride Month, I call upon the LGBT community, the Congress, and the American people to work together to promote equal rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2009 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to turn back discrimination and prejudice everywhere it exists.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this first day of June, in the year of our Lord two thousand nine, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-third.

BARACK OBAMA

An odd statement:

“Kors finds such a message to any child to be, “reprehensible” and unworthy of any group contending it represents the compassionate teachings of Jesus Christ or the best interest of children, as in the case of both the Boy Scouts or America and the Catholic and Mormon churches.”

From Nov 10 of 2009 the lds folks issued this statment —
SALT LAKE CITY — At Tuesday night’s Salt Lake City Council meeting, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued a statement showing its support of the city’s proposed non-discrimination regulations.

The statement by the LDS Church reflects a position stated by the high-ranking church authorities more than a year ago.

“We are not anti-gay, we are pro-marriage between a man and a woman. And there’s a huge difference between those two points,” Elder L. Whitney Clayton, of the Presidency of the Quorum of the Seventy told KSL News.

One day after last year’s election — in which the Church supported California’s Proposition 8 — Elder Clayton stressed the support of traditional marriage.

The Church’s First Presidency also released a statement, which reads, in part, that the Church “does not object to rights for same-sex couples regarding hospitalization and medical care, fair housing and employment rights or probate rights.”

“The LDS Church says it does not oppose same-sex couples receiving such rights as hospitalization and medical care, fair housing rights, or probate rights,” Mike Thompson, with Equality Utah, said in 2008.

I was more than a little shocked that such a supposed pro-family outfit would support deviant sex and devient sex arragments.

I guess PC has even hit SLC....

I don’t think that Boy Scouts is “taxpayer funded” as in our tax dollars goes to the Boy Scouts. The Boy Scouts are an independant organization which recieves no tax dollars but donations from individuals and companies. That line in the beginning of the article is misleading.

Never once did I ever care if someone is or was gay, what you do in your private life I do not care. But when you bring your perverted weirdness into the public then you should be punished.

Gays are dangerous because of their rabid support of perversion and America hatred, after all they are Democrats.

I think the best solution for the homosexual issue has already been implemented and that is don't ask don't tell. There is no further room for compromise because the definition of who they are, viz. their sexual behavior, will always be repugnant to most people.

They don't want "equality", they want complete dominance. Anyone who doesn't see that is wearing coke bottle dark glass moral blinders. OTOH they scream that homosexuals shoudl be priests, then they slam the Catholic Church because it allowed homosexuals into the priesthood, and now they want homosexual Scout Masters. Those promoting the homoseuxal agenda are truly Evil and Insane. And so-called "Liber(al)tarians" who think that there should be no laws or restrictions regarding homosexuality are part of the problem. They are wearing not only Moral Blinders but have pulled on the accompanying Reality Blinders. Actually can't have one without the other.
